"Beethoven's House" Beethoven House Tip by Mariajoy

Beethoven House, Bonn: 9 reviews and 20 photos

  Beethovens House
by Mariajoy

Beautiful Baroque town house at Bonngasse 20 where Beethoven was born in 1770. The museum artefacts include various ear trumpets belonging to the great composer, these get larger as his disability worsens. There are also letters and musical instruments, music sheets and his death mask.

Photos are not permitted inside the house, but it's ok to take them in the garden.

Entry is 2E per person and there is also a small gift shop.

Oh and did you know.... *Beethoven* comes from Beet Hof - meaning Beetroot farm? Our guide explained this to us and told us that his family had originally been farmers...... interesting.

Address: Bonngasse 18-26 53111 Bonn
Directions: A very short walk from the Rathaus.
